The American Line Patton, Devil Dog, Liberty, Stealth, Riptide (2009): Fragrances Dedicated to the Armed Forces {New Perfumes} {Men's Cologne}

A Californian company called Parfumologie came up with the project in 2008 to dedicate an entire line of perfumes to the armed forces of the United States of America. They decided to launch the officially licensed line entitled The American Line with five masculine fragrances and are planning a similar collection for women in the future. The five colognes introduced with the tag line "Uniquely crafted fragrances for the men of the United States military" are Patton (Army), Devil Dog (Marines), Liberty (Navy), Stealth (Air Force) and Riptide (Coast Guard). 10% of the proceeds for each cologne go to each individual branch and an additional 15% will go to the Veterans Affairs.

The inspiration for American Line is based on real-life face-to-face interviews with dozens of active servicemen and veterans.

"[...] Being sensitive to the feelings of the men and women that the item represented was a top priority.

From these meetings, Parfumologie learned that the idea had strong appeal, as long as it was carried out correctly.....

    EAA Airventure Museum Features Oshkosh Resident’s Extensive Lindbergh Memorabilia Collection

    A rare and fascinating private collection of memorabilia saluting Charles Lindbergh, one of the legendary pilots in aviation history, is on special display at the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh through August 1.

    The display, part of the extensive collection owned by Rosemary Zuern of Oshkosh, highlights the Museum’s current in-depth exhibit on Lindbergh and his famous solo trans-Atlantic flight in 1927. Zuern’s collection of approximately 3,000 individual pieces is the result of more than four decades of collecting items celebrating Lindbergh’s aviation achievements.

    “Charles Lindbergh’s flight truly captured the imaginations of people around the world like few other events during the 20th Century,” said Adam Smith, Director of the EAA AirVenture Museum. “It is not unrealistic to say that the outpouring of souvenirs, music, toys and other memorabilia honoring Lindbergh was one of first instances where the full force of modern consumerism and mass media combined to create a market that became bigger than either the person or original event.”

    Among the items on display from Zuern’s collection will be:

    * A 1927 “Welcome Home, Lindbergh” banner, one of just two known to exist;
    * Dozens of commemorative pins, buttons, and medallions honoring Lindbergh's flight;
    * Spirit of St. Louis chocolate molds;
    * Bottles of Lindbergh perfume, still in the display rack;
    * Lindbergh busts, plus dozens of toys and models of the Spirit and Lindbergh.

    These items will complement EAA’s collection of Lindbergh items, highlighted next to the main diorama of 1927 Paris beneath EAA’s first Spirit of St. Louis replica. That airplane was built and flown in 1977 to follow the route of Lindbergh’s triumphant U.S. tour following his return from Europe 50 years earlier. The Spirit of St. Louis replica on display at the EAA AirVenture Museum was also shipped to Paris in 1987 and landed at LeBourget Airport on the 60th anniversary of Lindbergh’s arrival on French soil.

    The Museum exhibit also features video presentations on Lindbergh’s flight as well as EAA’s 1977 U.S. tour re-creation. There are also newspaper reproductions from Lindbergh’s landing in Paris and other memorabilia.

    After the original Spirit of St. Louis replica was retired to the EAA museum exhibit in 1988, a second replica was constructed to meet the continuing demand for a flyable Spirit of St. Louis. The second replica was completed in 1991 and is housed at Pioneer Airport adjacent to the EAA AirVenture Museum.

    “Rosemary’s collection, featured with EAA’s Lindbergh exhibit, creates perhaps one of the most remarkable displays about the man and the flight that a person can ever see,” Smith said. “These are the types of presentations that are possible when the resources of a major museum such as EAA works with the enthusiasm of individual collectors. It will be a rare treat for museum visitors.”

    The special Lindbergh exhibit is also a Museum highlight for the EAA AirVenture 2001 theme of “Aviation Firsts.” In addition to the Lindbergh display, numerous aircraft throughout the EAA AirVenture Museum will be noted as “Aviation First” aircraft during the event, which will be held July 24-30 at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

    The EAA AirVenture Museum is located just off Highway 41 at the Highway 44 exit in Oshkosh. The Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call the EAA AirVenture Museum at (920) 426-6108.

    • Hi,

      Yes, I see that there is a Lindbergh perfume on display. I was wondering, are you the author of this text because otherwise I cannot reproduce it in its entirety due to copyrights.
